Sakurabana Festival Edition
Every year in the Japantown section of San Francisco the Cherry Blossom Festival takes place. It’s a spring-time celebration of all things Japanese. Several streets are closed of for blocks in either direction. There are parades, concerts, Cosplayers, Lolitas and oh yeah, street food as far as the eye can see. The most anticipated was the Hello Kitty food truck. Basically it doesn’t even have to serve good food. It just has to be cute, and the lines will form. If you enjoy a crisp Sapporo, Takoyaki, fried mochi and great people watching then this is the event to come to.
There are also two very, very good Ramen places right in Japantown as well as the most eclectic Japanese comfort food diners called On the Bridge, because it’s literally located on a bridge. So yeah, Cherry Blossom up! Hanabi also went to Biscuit Bitch, which is awesome. He also visited his lady’s cousin’s taqueria called La Estacion. Basically, it’s total nepotism and his review of this one is highly suspect and biased. But, it made me hungry.
Insane Dane checks in with a few Dish + Drink posts such as No Food Left Behind, which is actually about a really important cause. and a tragedy about a BTR intern who is going from Veg to Vegan! The Humanity! He also schools you on how to properly Spatchcock a chicken.
Father John Misty,
Let yourself get wrapped up in this melancholic wind of nostalgia. | read
